"Perfect for a quick get-a-way!"
My daughters and I loved the hotel! Clean room, great location and very friendly and helpful staff. The on-site restaurant, Currants, was excellent for breakfast. The only con was the size of the room. Very small and a tight fit, but having read previous reviews, we were aware and just fine with that. The room was very clean and the towels are seriously some of the best hotel towels ever!

"Perfect stay"
The entire staff was helpful and gracious from the valet to the front desk to the maid service. They had a pet bowl and and pet bed ready for my dog at check in. The bed was comfortable, the room was gorgeous with an excellent view. The hotel provided coffee in the morning in the cozy lobby and the location was perfect, right in the heart of the gaslamp district and very walkable to all the restaurants, bars and sites. My dog and I had a great time and will definitely return to this hotel.

"Perfect pad for partying"
I wanted a stylish spot in Gaslamp for me (and friends if need be) to crash at for my 30th birthday. I took a gamble in reserving this hotel as I did not know which one I was getting. All I knew ahead of time was that it was in dowtown and 4 stars. When I found out the location of the hotel, my jaw dropped. Right in the middle of all of downtown San Diego's best bars and restaurants. The lobby wasn't much of a lobby, quite small but all the staff for check in were prompt and friendly. Room was clean, well kept, and hip urban modern decor. It was also stuffed with lots of goodies too, just don't eat everything! The shower was out in the open, be aware if you have privacy issues. But this hotel was all that I had hoped for. The biggest con for me was parking, at $35 a nite it is not cheap so factor that in your bill. Also, if you are sensitive to noise, be aware that you will here all the commotion from the streets below. Best for younger singles and couples, not recommended for kids and families.

    Find The Top Hotels In San Diego

    San Diego is the epitome of the eternal summer. A place where the famous SoCal sun is always out, but cooling ocean breezes temper it into the perfect climate. But as a wise wanderer, you need more than great weather to entice you to a place. San Diego more than amply delivers. It's a city where luxury hotels in San Diego atop skyscrapers complement the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a culturally and historically rich treasure, while oceanfront resorts offer you a beautiful room just steps from the water. In San Diego, flip flops and shorts can be your uniform of choice, and an afternoon's pursuits will involve nothing more strenuous than touring craft breweries. Yet, if you desire, the finest seafood restaurants and sunset vistas also invite you to dress up and enter into a distinctly informal type of elegance you'll only find in California. With such a convivial atmosphere, you'll know that your days will be spent outdoors, your horizon painted with the blues of the bay, and your entire being immersed in the sounds, scents, and smiles of summer. You will face one challenge, though: deciding where to stay in San Diego because they're all great options.

    Things to Do on Land

    Start your adventures at Balboa Park, a 1,200-acre open space filled with museums and gardens. With so many downtown San Diego hotels, you'll find that some of the best places to stay in San Diego are conveniently close to this urban-meets-nature treasure. Among dozens of other attractions, the park is home to the San Diego Zoo, the pride of the city for its pioneering animal exhibits that enthrall adults every bit as much as youngsters. You might generally skip a city's zoo in favor of more culturally compelling attractions, but this one is well worth fitting in to your itinerary. After a morning spent gawking at the vintage automobiles at the San Diego Automotive Museum, head to the harbor to hang out in the brig of the aircraft carrier-turned-museum USS Midway or the deck of the oldest active ship, the Star of India. Other great things to do in San Diego include venturing back in time at Old Town, a historic park encompassing a number of buildings constructed in the 1800s. The Whaley House there will get you acquainted with the area's early days and maybe some local spirits on a ghost tour. Not interested in hanging out with the dearly departed? Head a little farther north to La Jolla Cove to hear the sea lions bark and watch the sunset deliver its nightly curtain call from the sandstone cliffs or San Diego hotels.

    Things to Do on the Water

    Around San Diego, you'll almost certainly be enticed to get out onto, or into, the calm waters of one of the bays. It's as though the protected lagoon of Mission Bay was designed for kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, or splashing around in the shallows. And in San Diego you can enjoy such recreational pleasures year-round with San Diego hotels in close proximity to it all. Experience the thrill of cruising through San Diego Bay on a state-of-the-art yacht, or enter into the evening in style with a sunset cruise. Go beyond what the beach hotels in San Diego offer and ride out into the vast Pacific in search of whales crashing and breaching as they make their way otherwise silently along the coast. The gray whales make their migration from June to September, when you could be lucky enough to behold a blue whale, the largest animal on the planet. In your many years of traveling you've beheld some incredible natural wonders, and seeing the immense hump of a blue whale's back emerging above the surface of the ocean, knowing it represents but a fraction of the behemoth's bulk, will rank among the most unforgettable of them all.

    Eating and Drinking

    You can’t visit San Diego and not try one of its famous California burritos. It turns out you can add french fries or carne asada to just about anything. Taste the SoCal twist on Mexican cuisine in local buttery avocados, the cooling freshness of pico de gallo, dollops of sour cream, and handfuls of cheese that adorn signature burritos, tacos, and quesadillas alike. Or there's always the fish tacos. Pair these San Diego staples with a sweet and salty margarita while staying at one of the cheap hotels in San Diego, and you’ll be living like the locals in no time.

    Sample more refined culinary offerings across the bay in Coronado, or to the north in La Jolla. Think sumptuous Champagne brunches, extensive wine lists showcasing California's best labels, and platters of plump shellfish artfully arranged over ice. If a day of fun in the sun has you hungry for something more filling, the Little Italy neighborhood is dotted with Italian restaurants spanning family-owned pizza and sub joints to traditional trattorias serving heaps of home-style pasta. Embrace the challenge to sample every facet of San Diego cuisine—after all, you have three meals a day worth of options.

    Day Trips

    Did you bring your passport? San Diego's southern reaches butt up against the U.S.-Mexico border, across from which is the sprawling city of Tijuana. Most day-trippers stick to the tourist-oriented bars and street markets close to the border zone, and there's no shortage of vendors offering goods from "gold" necklaces to woven blankets to handcrafted leather purses. You might also find some time for tacos, tequila, and a portrait with one of TJ's famous zebras (Play along—they know, you know, we all know it's a painted donkey). Stick to California, and potential day trip destinations include the small coastal city of Carlsbad, famous for its flower fields. A riot of multi-hued blooms arranged in painterly rows, the scene harmonizes beautifully with your vacation's endless summer theme. If you can stand a temperature drop for a day, drive up into the Cuyamaca Mountains to the picturesque town of Julian. Its gold-mining heritage (all of it captured in the walls of pioneer-era structures) is unusual for SoCal, as are the apple orchards that thrive in the milder mountain climate. Find time for such a day trip and be reminded that smaller towns and little-known destinations can be just as memorable as major cities. Your photos of those flower fields will be as vibrant as any you snapped at the beach, and the street tacos you inhaled in TJ as tasty as a meal in the finest waterfront restaurant.
